Mobile Tribes!

Stephen Dale's curator insight, April 20, 8:05 AM

"The next big thing is getting smaller and smaller."

 

"The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems."

I think these two statements are pretty much spot-on, and will watch with interest as Facebook (and the 'others') tries to look small while continuing to gobble-up anyone and anything that looks like it might threaten its business model. We don't need one all-consuming platform, but that not how FB shareholders view the world.

 

Interesting times ahead!

Francisco Restivo's curator insight, Today, 2:15 PM

At the end, we all will find our little corners and our big windows!

The Future of Mobility [Infographic]

The Future of Mobility [Infographic] | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

An astounding 80 percent of the world’s population now has a mobile phone—and 84 percent is unwilling to go a single day without their phone. About 45 percent of Americans say they can’t go more than a few hours without checking their phones. In 2012 there were five billion mobile phones in the world—1.8 billion of these were smart phones.

 

Facebook now reaches 76 percent of the smartphone market, and it accounts for 23 percent of total time spent using apps each month.

The next five most used applications are Google apps, and they account for 10 percent of app usage time. One of the latest smartphone trends is that things are getting less touchy but more sensitive. Gestures and other non-tap inputs are on the rise. Casting a sidelong glance, for example, can pause a video. Some apps are being developed that will switch from manual to voice to text to gesture, depending on what you are doing...

Voor een ieder die zich nog afvraagt waarom mobile content belangrijk is.. 

Mobile is dé manier om in cotact te blijven. En of je nu een commercieel bedrijf bent wat graag een product aan de man brengt, of je bent dienstverlener of overheid. Het maakt niet meer uit. Geen mobile ontent, geen engagement. Niet meer boeien en binden. Tja.. Wie kan zich dat nu nog permiteren?

Simon Staffans:  "Brand storytelling, deep knowledge of audiences and real-life interaction will all be key moving forwards"...

Nicoletta Gay's curator insight, March 7, 5:33 AM

Three areas we should take into consideration when approaching cross media projects this year:

1. Companies need stories too

2. Let’s help people scratch their own itches

3. Think beyond the screen, to real-life interaction

Printing the Human Body: How It Works and Where It Is Headed

Printing the Human Body: How It Works and Where It Is Headed | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

The rise of 3D printing has introduced one of the most ground-breaking technological feats happening right now. The most exciting part, though, doesn't have anything to do with printing electronics or fancy furniture, but in producing human tissues, otherwise known as bioprinting. While it is still in its infancy, the future of bioprinting looks very bright and will eventually result in some major advances for society, whilst also saving billions for the economy this is spent on research and development.

Peter Phillips's curator insight, November 27, 2013 1:55 PM

I can't see this saving money - but it will save lives. The technology to print exists. It is the question of how to develop stem cells into tissue types and then how to link these with the bodies complex control systems (nervous, circulatory and immune). in the best case scenario a grown organ will be recognised as self and the body systems will grow into them. However, organs are not toasters. Researchers are concentrating on easy things like skin grafts and ears at present, but like nano electronics, the future is full of potential and questions.

Steve Kingsley's curator insight, November 27, 2013 9:27 PM

Will HP buy Organovo, which invented and produces the NovoGen bioprinter?

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, November 29, 2013 5:46 PM

Such astonishingly wonderful ways to use the new 3D printing technology.
